Description: This 10-1-PIR monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse paired Ig-like receptors of activating (PIR)-A and -B. These cell surface glycoproteins, which contain six extracellular Ig-like domains with distinct transmembrane and cytoplasmic regions, are expressed together on B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, macrophages, granulocytes, platelets, and mast cells. However, expression of PIR-A/B has not been observed on T cells, NK cells, and erythrocytes. The PIR-A receptor interacts with signaling molecules containing immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motifs (ITAMs) which lead to its activating function. In contrast, the PIR-B receptor associates with proteins possessing immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs (ITIMs); therefore, this receptor has been shown to have an inhibitory function. PIRs bind MHC class I to modulate cell signaling and homeostasis of the immune system. Moreover, PIR-B knockout mice have been shown to exhibit susceptibility to Salmonella infection. Crossblocking studies indicate that 10-1-PIR recognizes a different epitope from 6C1 (cat. no. 46-5978). Applications Reported: This 10-1-PIR antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 10-1-PIR antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 µg per test.A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. Paired Ig-like receptors of activating (PIR)-A and -B are expressed on B lymphocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, platelets, granulocytes, and mast cells, but not on T cells, NK cells, and erythrocytes. These cell surface glycoproteins contain six extracellular Ig-like domains with distinct cytoplasmic and transmembrane regions. The PIR-A receptor activates through signaling molecules containing immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motifs. In contrast, the PIR-B receptor inhibits through proteins possessing immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs. PIRs bind MHC class I to modulate immune system homeostasis and cell signaling.
